Statement by The Honourable John Manley in response to today’s announcement that China and Canada have agreed to grant each other’s citizens visas valid for up to 10 years:
“The introduction of 10-year multiple-entry visas recognizes the deepening commercial links between Canada and China. With longer visas, Canadian entrepreneurs and companies can focus on growing their business in the dynamic and competitive Chinese market. The Canadian Council of Chief Executives welcomes this significant step toward more efficient travel between Canada and China.”
Founded in 1976, the CEO Council is the senior voice of Canada’s business community, representing 150 chief executives and leading entrepreneurs in all sectors and regions of the country. Its member companies collectively employ 1.5 million Canadians and are responsible for most of Canada’s private sector investments, exports, workplace training and research and development.
